Chicago, May 13.-The nation's in-
dustrial manpower has not suffered
any serious depletion as a result of
the United States first year in the
world. war, so far as indicated in.
recent surveys of the general labor
situtation conducted by the United
States employment service and the
lilinois employment bureau. Except
in certain skilled trades these bureaus
finr there is no marked shortage of
.labor, the chief problem at present
On an average 100,000 persons are
obtaining employment through the
Chicago district office of the federal
bureau as compared with a total of
495,000 during the last, fiscal year.
This huge increase is accounted for
by the recent re-organization of the
bureau for service as the national ma-
chinery for the mobilization and dis-
tribution of the country's labor. As
such it has handled the applications
of hundreds of thousands of workers
registering with the public service re-
serve, including more than 260,000 me-
chanics for shipbuilding.
Urged to Use Agency
A system of daily surveys shows the
bureaus where the greatest shortages
or surpluses exist and with this in-
formation it is able to make econo-
mic distribution. Manufacturers are
being urged to use the government
agency as far as possible in order to
reduce the labor turnover and uneco-
nomic competition between industries
essential to the war.
The demand for women workers is
said to be about normal. Only in a

New Department Formed
To cope with what is expected to be*
an unprecedented railroad labor short-
age later in the year, a new depart-
ment of the United States employment
service has been organized to handle
railroad labor for the western regional
district. By order of Director-Gener-

their labor bureaus and the govern-
ment agency will recruit their men
as well as direct the distribution. In.
event of an acute shortage of workers
Dustin Farnum, playing in "The
Spy" at the Arcade today, portrays the
part of a man of wealth and social
position who undertakes the hazard-
ous task of gaining a list of Teutonic
spies in the United States. When in
Berlin, he finds it necessary to en-
roll himself among those spies before
he can find where the book contain-
ing their names is kept. When he
gets posession of it he sends it to
the American ambassador. A love
story runs through the plot combining
admirably with the. heroic actions of
the hero. Winifred Kingston plays
opposite Dustin Farnum.

SENSATIONAL PHOTO-DRAMA TELLS THE STORY--
DO YOU KNOW YOUR NEIGHBOR?
It's the unusual that cuts the great big figure. And William Fox
has attained it in "THE SPY", the timely sensational photo-drama ex-
posing the operations of Germany's Secret Police in the United States.
DO YOU. KNOW YOUR NEIGHBOR? No; not always. Do you
know that the Prussians have 10,000foreign emissaries lurking and
scheming in this country? Every day the newspapers have stories to
the effect that important state secrets, information of military move-
ments and operations of the naval vessels reach the head of Germany's
Secret Police in Berlin.
All this is told in pictures by William Fox in one of the Greatest
War pictures of the day. And there is not a battle scene in it. "THE
SPY" features Dustin Farnum, as Mark Quaintance, the rich and
petted society man-who braved the horrors of Berlin's prisons-the
man who served his country in its time of need.
